Det amerikanske postrockband Caspians bassist, Chris Friedrich, er pludseligt og uventet afgået ved døden d. 25. august. Årsagen til bassistens dødsfald er endnu ikke offentliggjort.
Caspian har udsendt følgende meddelelse:
We write to you today with heavy hearts and indescribable sadness to tell you that our bass player, Chris Friedrich, died unexpectedly Sunday afternoon. We have lost a close friend, a true brother, and a presence that can never be replaced in any of our lives. Chris epitomized the heart and soul of Caspian, and in our own ways — both individually and collectively — dedicate ourselves to honoring his memory. We ask for privacy. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
We will be paying tribute this Saturday (8/31) to Chris by performing at The Engine Room in Manchester, NH. This is a benefit show for a friend of Chris’s who is seeking funding for a lung transplant. Chris was instrumental in putting this show together, and is the only way we know how to honor his memory at this time. You can find more information in our events section for this performance.
We love you all so very much.
Caspian er et af postrockens største navne og har flere gange gæstet dansk grund – blandt andet til den aarhusianske Postfest i 2012.
